I had to go into this workplace and set up dual monitors for 3 clients, they all have the same computers, same windows, same everything. 2 weeks back I found out a VGA Splitter wouldn't work (silly me) it only splits the same signal. So I turned to StarTechs USB2VGAE2. When I came to set up up on Computer 1, I spent hours disabling the firewall, updating the windows, updating drivers - Nothing works. It just wont pick up when I plug it into the computer (Yes plug n play is enabled, I can plug in a regular flash drive and it picks up fine)
So after hours of trying I gave up, before I left I plugged in one of the USB2VGAE2's into Computer 3, as soon as I plugged it in the little usb symbol appeared and it installed the device driver. Had no problem at all. Plugged in monitor 2 and bang, it works. I go in and it works on Computer 2. Same deal.
So 2/3 computers work, I tried each device on all the computers so its not the device, it is the same type of computer and set up. The only difference is that 2 of the computers work and one doesn't.
When I plug it in it appears in device manager as Unknown, and under printers and devices as USB2VGA. Whenver I install the drivers, they install so I can see which monitors which but still not signal out of the USB2VGA. The USB lights up like its supposed to, the computer recongizes it, but it looks like after its recongized nothing else happens, so basically I'm stuck at it picking up, but the monitor wont pick up the signal and the drivers dont install themselves.
I tried to install drivers off the site and CD. I have offically ran out of options and I need some help here to get this last computer to work..
Thank you for anyone who can and try to help me, i appreciate it!
(Cant install a video card as the PCI slot is way too small, and cards for the manfucaturer are last option, but I would rather use this USB2VGA.)
